Kibitzer's Corner
Sep-13-04  Knight13: In move 7. e5, white has already seen 12.Qxb7.
Feb-09-05  InspiredByMorphy: 6. ...Qf6? losing a tempo doesent make much sense. Why not play ...Qh6 right away?
Oct-20-05  DeepBlade: Funny to see, the chess-pieces battle at the H1 corner and a few seconds later they move to the A8 corner.

After analyzing the final position

-If Black takes the Bishop, the Queen captures Queen and gives check, so Black loses Queen with no compensation.

-If the Queen retreats to D7, the Bishop takes the Queen, winning the exchange Bishop for a Queen.

-If Black plays another piece the Bishop just takes the Queen at C6.

I may have missed some stuff, please correct me if I'm wrong.

Apr-02-07  Skylark: Nice double threat to f7 and b7. I have to tuck that one away for blitz. ^^
Aug-10-08  just a kid: <DeepBlade>You didn't miss anything.Black basically loses bishop for queen.
Apr-07-12  Suryanshu: hooohoooohoooo....now this is the same position that one of my opponents resigned ...although the opening was e4 e5 f4 exf4 Nf3

  sea7kenp: <DeepBlade>: In final position, if 13 ... Qd7, why not 14 Qd8+? The Queen is pinned by the Bishop and can't capture the White Queen. After 14 ... Ke7 and 15 Bxd7, Black can't take the Bishop, because his Queen Rook is unprotected.
